The usual reason for this is malware on your own computer, not anything on this site.
There are a number of trojans out there which do this sort of thing, and you can easily catch the infection if you visit shopping sites or sports or gaming sites. Suggest you run one of the malware programs, such as Malwarebytes (free download from malwarebytes.org), before sending feedback if nothing is found and the problem persists. Virus software doesn't remove this kind of infection because it's adware, not a virus.

Originally posted by bks2000 I was afraid the problem was on my machine. But it only seems to occur on the RHP site. I did run Malwarebytes, and I use AVG (both free version) but the problem persists.
It likely is only on your machine, or possibly your local network (ie in your house). But more likely your machine. Try using a different browser, and also try using a different machine. You don't need to do this permanently, just to verify where the problem is occurring. There are a few other spyware detectors, try using those, as most people reckon you need about four different ones to catch all malware.
Sounds like some program might be working in the background to hijack pop-up windows in your browser.
If the malware programs don't find the culprit, try disabling all your browser extensions and re-enabling them one by one; you might be able to short-cut this by looking for any suspicious extensions you don't remember installing.
Also read through the list of installed programs: if there's anything you can't identify, compare its installed date with others in the list and you should find what it came with. If you can't match the date, try googling the program name. I've found several nasties this way.
I did update MWB before the scan. The problem presented itself again after I ran MWB and scanned for viruses, but I know adware is different from a virus. Lately it seems to be stable - no redirects. But the problem only appeared when I was in RHP... not in any other sites.
